President Obama’s new health plan is flooding the media, creating quite the controversial buzz. Obama is pushing the creation of a bill to give health insurance to every American on his desk before congress takes a month break in August. However he is not the only one pushing for national health coverage.
According to the Washington Business Journal:
“A coalition of labor unions and progressive organizations plans to spend $82 million on organizing efforts, advertising, research and lobbying to support the Obama plan.” – Business Warily Awaits Health Care Reform by Kent Hoover
As American waits on Obama’s national health plan, keep yourself up to date on your current insurance. Medical emergencies are largely expensive and stressful; and without insurance coverage the costs may be detrimental.
According to a study conducted by Harvard researchers:
“62% of all personal bankruptcies in the U.S. in 2007 were caused by health problems.” –Study Links Medical Costs and Personal Bankruptcy by Catherine Arnst
